Why work in Al Ahsa?

The oasis region of Al Ahsa in eastern Saudi Arabia has the greenest scenery in the country. An abundance of water springs along with continuous sunshine sustain the area’s numerous palm trees and a thriving local agriculture. Al Ahsa is now home to shopping centres, a pottery works in the Jabal Al-Qarah cave and the King Abdullah Environmental Park with its dancing fountains, Heritage Village and amusement rides.

While life in Al Ahsa and Saudi Arabia on the whole could be seen as restrictive, Pulse staff live in compounds so have a more Western day to day existence; most compounds are cosmopolitan, social hubs, well equipped with a pool, a gym, at least one shop and in some you’ll even find hairdressers. Working in the Middle East has many advantages, allowing you to immerse yourself in a new culture, enjoy glorious sunshine and perhaps even learn a new language, all while furthering your career. Given that the accommodation is paid for, and that rates of pay are excellent, many expats choose to work in the Middle East for a period to save money and return home having done exactly that.  

Being located in the Middle East also means many holiday destinations in Africa, India, Australia and South East Asia are a short distance away so you can see the world while working abroad.
